    Looks like it was owned and played by Sasquatch.

    I’d normally agree but not here. Leveling would be a waste of dough. There’s so little meat left what’s the point. It’s only a matter of time for a refret.

    Yea those necks are certainly expensive. It’ll cost you just as much to get a new one as it’d be to put stainless on what you have now.

    I had a refret done on my 1984 AVRI - the guitar is perfect but the frets were shot. Cost me $250. For the refret, but it took some time - the luthier who did it, had my guitar for 6 months. I was getting upset about the time & found he was sick & ended up n the hospital. He did a fantastic job, I couldn’t be happier with the results.
    It was not playable with its original frets.

    You could level them, but there's a lot of metal to lose and the feel would change considerably; you'd be down to almost the level of 'vintage' low fret wire. Personally I would go with a re-fret using the wire gauge of your choice. I prefer a taller fret so I'm playing more fret than wood, if that makes sense.
